Fast and easy fried chicken strips with a little twist! Marinate chicken in a tasty lime and soy sauce-based marinade with plenty of garlic, then flour up and fry! Be traditional and serve with brown beans and rice, or dish up a fine fried potato product. Prep time includes marinating.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine marinade ingredients in a plastic zipper bag.
  2. Add chicken strips and marinate in refrigerator for at least 3 hours.
  3. Combine flour, paprika, pepper and salt in another zipper bag.
  4. Transfer chicken strips to flour mixture, coating evenly.
  5. Heat oil over medium-high heat and fry chicken in batches of 4 strips (don't overcrowd; oil will cool down too much during cooking), taking about 4 minutes per side to brown outside and thoroughly cook insides.
  6. When done, transfer chicken strips to a plate lined with paper towels, and lightly sprinkle with salt.
  7. Cook remaining batches of strips, keeping others warm in a low-temp oven.

I didn't love the flavor of these, but they were better with some Mojito. On the plus side my 2yo loved them and it's always good to have a recipe around that he will eat during his more picky times.
